Topic: The Canadian Craft Brewers Association and Coalition of Canadian Independent Craft Brewers want the federal government to introduce a progressive, revenue-neutral, federal excise rate schedule for beer to promote growth for Canada’s independent craft breweries.

Women in brewing is also discussed as its International Women’s Day.
